TV’s popular host and actor Shekhar Suman redefined himself completely a few years ago by undergoing a transformation and building his body. The actor revealed that he got complimented by some of the biggest names of Bollywood for his toned body.
Shekhar underwent a major transformation at the age of 54 and his new-look left many inspired.
When asked about what made him undergo the transformation, the seasoned actor said, "I wanted to be fitter. I decided to look after my health and around the same time, I was coming up with a music album where I was paired opposite Bruna Abdulha who was half my age. She was my heroine and I needed to look fitter and match-up to her on-screen. One day I just got up and I said I needed to have my six-pack abs, triceps and biceps and I started working out. I wanted to see if I could take up fitness and maintain it. I like taking challenges and I took this up. Then I never looked back. I remember when I started doing it, I went with full force working out and maintaining a strict diet. I would start the gym and would lock it also. There were so many people from Bollywood who used to come there. There was Saif Ali Khan, Ajay Devgn who came to the same gym."
The popular actor also revealed that his transformation took everyone by surprise and the who's who of Bollywood called to compliment on his chiselled body, "When I suddenly made that body, everyone complimented me. I got a call from Shah Rukh Khan, Hrithik Roshan, Anil Ambani asked who was my trainer and it became a talk of the town. They asked me who's my trainer. I didn't realise that it was such a big deal. I am happy that I inspired a lot of people and a lot of people also inspired me. The good thing is that I never resorted to the use of steroids because I know a lot of people in a hurry to make a good physique end up taking steroids and then they land up in a sou," he shared.
At the age of 57, Shekhar still has managed to keep a physique that is to die for and works hard to make it stay that way.
